St Mirren host Hearts at The SMiSA Stadium on Saturday in our penultimate home match of the 2022/23 season.
Saints were narrowly beaten by Hibernian at Easter Road in our first post-split fixture. Alex Greive netted in the second-half, but it wasn't enough to earn a share of the spoils after two first-half goals from the Hibees. The Buddies currently sit in sixth place in the cinch Premiership on 44 points.
Hearts come into the match sitting in fourth place - four points above Saints. Interim Hearts boss Steven Naismith saw his side reduced to 10 men on Sunday as they lost 2-0 at home to Celtic. That was the Jambos sixth loss in seven league matches, but their performance against Celtic, married with a 6-1 home win over Ross County before the split, will have given Hearts a boost.

Goals from Curtis Main and Alex Gogic saw Saints defeat Hearts 2-0 at Tynecastle last month.
That was the third meeting of the two sides in 2023 with the Buddies drawing 1-1 with the Jambos at The SMiSA Stadium in January, before falling to a narrow 1-0 loss at Tynecastle six days later.
Saints' last win over Hearts at The SMiSA Stadium came in March 2020 when Jon Obika scored the only goal of the game in the final match of the curtailed 2019/20 season.
